Essential Varanasi! (North walk)

Starting in the heart of the old city, the walk takes you through its colourful markets, captivating places of worship, ancient buildings of stupendous architecture, and even greater stories! 

Experience the lively Banarasi way of life, elements of Hindu philosophy and mythology, and at Manikarnika - the main burning ghat, understand the city’s compelling take on Death & Moksha. Punctuated with frequent hidden-in-the-corner spots of solace amidst the hustle-bustle, the walk perfectly emulates the eccentricities of Banaras!

Starting with a live performance of Indian classical music, walk into a traditional Wrestling Akhara, magnificent historic structures, a temple where young kids are studying Vedas, and a neighbourhood replete with handloom workshops. Connecting the dots along this quirky mix of venues, you'd be left with a deep understanding of this oldest continuously thriving culture in the world.
